Elissa and Nic’s wedding was definitely one of a kind. The couple had a Quaker style ceremony at the Friends Center and reception at the German Society. With about 7 blocks between the two venues, the couple was escorted by all of their friends on bicycles, parading down Spring Garden Street. The couple’s friends were heavily involved with the planning and styling of the wedding. Flowers designed by Cottage Floral Design and music by Holly Sue, aka DJ Snak Pak. Elissa’s wedding dress was handmade by Kirby Mckensie of Job and Boss. We had a lot of fun with Elissa and Nic, as well as their family and friends. The whole night was just a great celebration!
Thanks Elissa and Nic for having us there to photograph your wedding!
Emilie and Steve were married at the German Society of Philadelphia on Spring Garden. The gorgeous building housed both the ceremony and reception on a perfect fall day. Emilie and Steve were married in the library amidst thousands of old books, with dim lighting and enormous balloons tied to the seats. Friends and family pitched in and handmade all the decorations and favors. It was so much fun! Thanks so much Emilie and Steve for letting us be a part of your day!
Alison and Krik’s wedding was so unique and fun to shoot!
Alison has graciously forwarded me some info about her wedding:
Anna McCraney [link] made Alison’s dress. She’s a friend of the bride who’s also a really talented designer. The inspiration was a vintage Ossie Clark dress that Alison saw a celebrity wear to a premiere.
I really just wanted something with a vintage feel.
The church was St. Malachy’s Catholic Church. The officiant was the bride’s uncle, Father Ken Hallahan.
That’s why we had it in the church to begin with…we really wanted him to be part of it, so we had to do it there.
The flowers are from Nature’s Gallery Florist, who have a lot of organic/locally sourced/seasonal flowers. M Catering catered the reception held at the German Society of Philadelphia [link]. Classic Cakes made the wedding cake.
The closest we got to DIY (other than the kid’s goodie bags) on everything else was just trying to make the whole thing feel unique, not overly formal, and showcase our friends talents as much as possible.
The DJ was a friend, Brian Curtis.
He was the only person I could have ever wanted to dj our wedding, because his taste is so good and he is very effective at starting a party. I flew him out from California just to do it (thankfully, he only wanted the plane ticket as payment!).
As far as the venue was concerned: We wanted something a little unique, without too much of a “wedding hall” feel. We really liked the library, and the hardwood floors, oil paintings, and big windows in the ballroom. Plus the price was right, so there you go.
Favorite thing about the wedding? We felt like the “vibe” of the wedding was a really good, fun, positive one. Looking at the pictures makes us remember how great of a mood it was…everyone looked so good, it was great to see our friends and family dancing all together, and there was a lot of laughter. That made it really special for us.
